Did you notice a change in your family’s attitude about getting outdoors by the end of this winter Challenge?

Elizabeth – Yes. By the end of the month, my kids were begging to go outside, even if it was freezing out. Rain, snow, wind, sun, they wanted to be outside.
– This was our first winter challenge here in Bend. We felt much more confident about being outside with both kiddos.
Jennifer – 
Every decently warm day I couldn’t wait to get out with my newborn!

What was your favorite moment of this month’s Challenge?

Elizabeth – My son is very much in love with the movie Frozen and constantly sings the songs. All winter I hear every morning “Do you want to build a snow man?” Finally, mid-January, the weather was warm enough to play outside but there was snow on the ground. After our walk, we built a snow man, and he giggled the entire time we were building it.
– Watching my 2 year old learn to ski. He really impressed me!
Jennifer – 
The warmer weather helped a lot.

Why would you recommend joining the HiB30 Challenge to a family who may be considering joining the next one?

Elizabeth – It’s a great motivator to get out of the house. I’m such a competitive person, all I need is a challenge or a goal, and I will make time to make it happen! It’s also a great way to meet a lot of wonderful families. It might just be my perspective, but it sure seems that hikes are fuller during the challenge months!
– It’s a great motivator to go outside!
Jennifer – 
The ladies are very accommodating and motivating!!!

Describe this Challenge in 3 words – Go!

Elizabeth – Brisk family adventures.
Kimberly – So much snow!
Jennifer – Challenging, exciting, different.
